“MINARI blossoms with hope in the beating heart of America. Lee Isaac Chung’s deeply personal saga is an ode to the unrelenting pressure of the pioneer spirit. Universal questions about home, pride and identity drive the narrative to touch both hearts and minds, as the Yi family dreams for more in a field of uncertainty. Steven Yeun and Yeri Han’s epically understated performances infuse the film with unfeigned emotion, and Yuh-Jung Youn is an inspiration who embodies the wry blessings and curses of generational wisdom.” –The American Film Institute
